Beginners Guide to Starting GroupsI often see groups fail before they have a chance to get seen, even if that group had a good idea. This is frequently because the founder (and possibly other admin) doesn’t know how to set up a group and get it noticed. I've put together this guide to help admins with this task. It may seem difficult, but from my own experience I found that this is one of the best parts of being an admin. There's always something to do and it can keep you entertained. Please note that this guide is subject to change if suggestions are made or DeviantART comes out with a new feature.First off, if you want your group to get noticed you have to put some time and effort into it, especially in the beginning. If you only feel like spending ten minutes a day on doing things for your group, then it's best not to start one at all. Whenever I start a group, I try to put in at least two hours a day. This may seem excessive, but like I said, there's always something to do. <strong>
